While the initial plans for the hotel when construction first started back in 1987 called for 3,000 hotel rooms over 105 storeys, the new plan is far less ambitious with hotel rooms only from floors 20-30. There will also be restaurants and "business facilities" throughout the building.
But sadly, because of the insane three-sided pyramid at the roof, there will be no rooftop pool. Yet given that the regime announced earlier this year that it would be shuttering its universities so that the students could go out and get real jobs, maybe Kim Jong-il can rope a few of them into putting in a pool.
Meanwhile, the hotel's English URL has already been taken and we're not sure which PR agency would ever take on such an ugly hotel as a client. Oh and yeah, it's located in the capital of a communist dictatorship. Good luck Kim!
